This week BlackBerry are shining in the spotlight of the press in the mobile world, thanks to the launch of its new operating system, BlackBerry 10, and early indications seem that it is reviewing quite well.

Clever marketing from augmented reality company, Blippar, has allowed iOS and Android users to experience the BlackBerry 10 experience right on their handsets.

Using the Blippar app, I "blipped" a landing page, which then swirled and whizzed through space while loading. After about ten seconds I was redirected to my web browser which then offered me an interactive experience.

While BlackBerry 10 technically doesn't "hijack" your iPhone or Galaxy, it does provide a good insight into the perks of the new operating system.

If you want to experience BlackBerry 10 first hand, without paying out the big bucks (yes, the handset does seem to be quite pricey), download Blippar on your handset, open www.bbtakeover.me on your desktop, and Blip away.
